Abseil from the ArcelorMittal Orbit
115,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Look out across London from the UK’s tallest sculpture, then take a leap (or controlled drop) off it on the UK’s highest freefall abseil with this ArcelorMittal Orbit Abseil for one. You’ll travel in the lift to the very top of the structure to get a hawk’s eye view of the park below and to look out over the rest of London. From here you’ll be able to pick out The Shard, BT Tower, The Gherkin, Big Ben, Canary Wharf and the O2 Arena - you might even be able to spot some new additions to the skyline like the 'Walkie Talkie' and the 'Cheesegrater'. Then, it’ll be time to take the plunge, heading out to the open-air platform for the descent of your life. The experienced Wire and Sky team will be with you every step of the way, ensuring you’re in the safest hands as you tip over the edge. The views are breathtaking and can stretch up to 20 miles on a good day, but no-one’ll blame you if you just want to focus on making your jaw-dropping way down! What's Included?

On arrival at the ArcelorMittal Orbit you’ll meet up with the Wire & Sky team before going through a safety brief, kitting up in your equipment and jumping in the lift to shoot up to the top of the sculpture. You’ll have a bit of time to take in the sights before making your way out onto the airy abseiling platform, where the team will go through the final safety checks ahead of attaching you to the abseiling systems. You’ll be taught everything you need to know to abseil safely and in a controlled manner – so all you’ll need to do then is take the leap.

Award-winning author, narrator, and screenwriter Neil Gaiman personally selected this book, and, using the tools of the Audiobook Creation Exchange (ACX), cast the narrators and produced this work for his audiobook label, Neil Gaiman Presents. The Privilege of the Sword tells the tale of a young girl who risks everything to go live with her eccentric, litigious - and extremely rich – uncle Alec in the colorful city Kushner has created, a city where elegant nobles can mingle with raffish actors one moment and deadly swordsmen the next. Fans of Kushner's first book, Swordspoint, will already be familiar with Alec as the angry young scholar with mysterious origins, living in the city’s Riverside district with a notorious killer swordsman. Now, in The Privilege of the Sword, some years later, Alec is the Mad Duke Tremontaine, living in a mansion on the Hill, still tortured by his past…. But you don’t need to have read Swordspoint to enjoy The Privilege of the Sword. This is the story of Katherine herself, a girl who starts out imagining her life will be a sort of Jane Austen-style romance, full of dances and dresses and parties - but finds that her iconoclastic uncle has other plans. When she gets to his house in the city, the Mad Duke dresses Lady Katherine in men's clothes, gets her a first-rate tutor in swordplay, and sets her loose on a traditional world that is not really ready for her…. Nor, at first, is she ready for it. A few words from Neil on Privilege of the Sword: "Life hands us so many moments when we hover between who we were raised to be, who the people around us are trying to make us, and who we are trying to become. In Katherine's case, that means encountering a range of people and behaviors her mother never prepared her for - including some shocking acts of violence, both physical and emotional. As one of Kushner’s most charming characters, an actress known 1. Language: English.

Fans of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series and Lauren Kate's FALLEN novels will devour The Beautiful and the Cursed, a wholly original interpretation of gargoyle lore. It was bizarre and inexplicable, but after it happened no one spoke of it and Ingrid Waverly was forced to leave her life in London behind. She had to trade a world full of fancy dresses and society events for Paris with her mother and younger sister, Gabby. In Paris there are no grand balls or glittering parties, and, disturbingly, the house her twin brother, Grayson, found for them isn't a house at all. It's an abbey. A creepy, old abbey with a roof lined in stone gargoyles that one could almost mistake for living, breathing creatures. And Grayson is missing. Yet no one seems to be concerned about Grayson's whereabouts save for Luc, a devastatingly handsome servant who has some secrets of his own. There's one secret about the city that he can't keep hidden, though. There's a murderer on the loose. And every day Grayson is missing means that there's less of a chance he's alive. Ingrid is sure her twin isn't dead - she can feel it deep in her soul - but she knows he's in grave danger, and that it's up to her and Gabby to find him before all hope is lost. Only the path to him is more than she could ever imagine. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katharine Lee McEwan. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/lili/001600/bk_lili_001600_sample.mp3.
